(Tom Petty Tribute)

It has been two years since Dan Grennes first brought his Tribute to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers to the stage at the Historic Hemet Theatre. The show was a sellout, leaving lots of fans begging for an encore performance.

This month, the wait is over as “Petty and the Heartshakers” returns to town on Saturday March 21st. There are still tickets remaining, but it looks like they may be gone by day of show.

Tom Petty passed away in 2017, leaving behind a long career of classic rock hits, some as lead singer of the Heartbreakers and others as a solo artist. In all, Petty has sold over 80 million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling music artists of all time and earning a place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. His best known songs include “Free Fallin’,” “I Won’t Back Down,” “Refugee,” “Yer So Bad,” “American Girl” and “Don’t Do Me Like That.”

Lead Singer Dan Grennes performs with a look and sound that will astound the audience. Raised in the south like Petty, Grennes feels a unique connection to the life and music of the rock icon. With his team of all-star musicians, Grennes plays for packed audiences across the country. In 2014, the Heartshakers appeared in season three of AXTV’s World’s Greatest Tribute Bands.

Petty and the Heartshakers is Dan Grennes (lead vocals, guitar), Les Warner (drums), Chris Cicchino (lead guitar), Andy Gerold (bass), Brenda Fitz (keyboards), and Sara D’Arce (background vocals)

Showtime for all Tribute Mania concerts is 7:00 pm, with doors open at 6:15 pm. Tickets are $22 presale / $25 day of show.

Information on all theatre events is available at or by calling the ticket office, (951) 658-5950. A weekly email blast of upcoming events is available by enrolling on the website.
